] it had gotten back down to its proper level, and all was well. you know, the election's over, and the president has been reelected, and the new congress has been sworn in, and we have basically what we had before other than the fact we spent $4 billion to have a president be reelected, the senate remain in one party's hand and the house remain in the republicans' hands. we have, we have effectively, we have gridlock. we have now, we have variations on these new terms like sequester, and so last week in washington they called the snow that never came the snowquester. we have things like the fiscal cliff that we would have thought you'd jump off of and die. so we're going from crisis to crisis, and nothing in the election really changed that. because our beloved nation is divided, the direction we should take is undecided as well. and meanwhile, the power of compounding is not our friend. our recovery is the weakest it's been in modern times. our entitlement programs, everybody recognizes, are unsustainable, literally unsustainable and grow in magnitude without change. our regu
in the cross hairs. in january 2005, iraq coast its first free elections in more than 50 years. the shiite majority became the strongest player in the new parliament, but violence overshadowed the tea. with more than 1000 attacks per week in late 2006, iraq threatened to slide into civil war. in 2007, u.s. troops erected a wall around city districts in an attempt to stem the sectarian bloodshed. the sectarian wall still divides parts of baghdad 15 months after the exit of u.s. forces. the sunni minority has expressed anger at what it sees as repression at the hands of the shiite-backed government. unrest and violence continued to dominate life in iraq. >> in germany, a court has started hearing a case brought by relatives of people killed in an air strike in northern afghanistan in september 2009. the german commander in the area ordered the nato air strike. >> at least 90 civilians were killed and dozens wounded in the air strike on two fuel tankers stolen by insurgents. berlin has already paid around 350,000 euros to the families of victims. they are seeking a total of 3.3 million in da
. the referendum on barack obama was the presidential election and look at the turnout -- the people that came out for him. you continue to misread the results. >> i hate to agree with you because you are trying to disagree with me, so it gets really complicated here. [laughter] i agree with you that barack obama is one of the great candidates in american history and that explains why the democrats did well in 2008 and 2012 -- we had a great candidate -- in 2010, when you neutralize the factor of the candidate, the republicans prevailed, which tells me that republican ideas are strong, and you have to have a candidate or a class of people that can explain it. >> that is the subject of the message to the american people, and they bought it. >>ut in 10, obacareas a factor and it will be a factor in 2014, do you not agree? >> it might very well be, but i will point out that we have returned to the days of yesteryear when dr. krauthammer was laboring in the democratic vineyards, and the explanation was ronald reagan won because he was a superior candidate, he was engaging, likeable and charismatic, a

they want to win elections and that think they're looking at the last two presidential elections and saying these are elections we could have won. they're also looking at things like the youth vote. young people really care about this issue as a civil rights issue. they're looking at things like average and will let knowledge they have made a lot of mistakes in terms of strategy, outrage, proper route reached to the hispanic community, african-american community in this is something you can do without pandering. lou: we have not seen much. it should have gone the other way. this ministration has been fall lawn full throttle. what do you think? were seeing a substantive change in direction and values? >> some republicans have decided that they want to have, shall we say, a more flexible approach and immigration and the marriage, but i will make your bet that we do not have -- we will not have a comprehensive immigration bill passed this year. as for game marriage, that will be determined by the supreme court. even if the supreme court votes against it, you're still going to have 30 states th

million minority outreach. two, an election to tap into election funds faster. and three, fewer presidential debates. a move designed keep party candidates from cannibalizing one another before facing off against their opponent. >> we know we have problems. we've identified them and we're implementing the solutions to fix them. >> so will the rnc's reboot fall flat with the present and future? at last week's conservative confab. take a look. >> we're not here to rebuild a party. we're here to rebuild a country. >> if standing for liberty and if standing for the constitution makes you a whack-a-bird, count me a proud whack-a-bird. >> i can my fellow republicans to think about what you can do. >> joining me now is henry barbour who helped compile this report. let's talk about this, henry barbour. the report itself is pretty scathing. it talks about a lot of things that could have been done differently as we look back on 2012. but one of the bigger things is about comprehensive immigration reform. how are people in this country supposed to believe in comprehensive immigration refor
game. >> and i won and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections -- >> i won in the elections, i had to win in 2009. christie and bob mcdonald in blue states. like new jersey, purple states like virginia. we laid down the ground game. national, 50-state strategy, we didn't have to go through the hoopla of press conferences, we just went out and did the heavy work of rebuilding the party. coming off of massive losses in 2006 and 2008. so raince is just being silly. i understand that, he wasn't complaining about debt and concern about debt when i was writing checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and wanted to win the state legislature, which they did. win the governorship, which they did. we focused both at the federal and the state level. and at the end of the day, the members were all on board about going into debt to win. now the rnc had a surplus, they had money in the bank at the end of the 2012 cycle. but they had nothing to show for it you lose eight house seats, you don't win the white house, when you should, that to me is more than enough evidence of
back in november. dissecting the election defeat, the gop has found that it is viewed as narrow-minded, out of touch, and full of stuffy old men. one calls for major changes in style and strategy, but how do they go about repairing a deeply divided party? cnn's brianna keilar is here in "the situation room," and she's taking a closer look at this report and fascinating material inside. >> fascinating material inside, and one of the things we're seeing in the republican party, what it's planning to do, is invest some serious money to build the republican brand in areas that are not republican strongholds, sending republicans basically ambassadors to participate in events in minority communities and even visit historically black colleges and universities. ♪ the math in jay z's campaign trail anthem was a little off. 219 is more like it, if you're talking about the gop failure in the last presidential election. >> there's no one reason we l t lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our prima
trying to figure out why they lost so big on election night. they lost african-americans, asian americans, latinos, young people and women. those are big problems but republicans are ignoring the real solutions. look, i think you're going to continue to have a problem. >> the problem is with their policies. there is no nice way to tell seniors you're changing social security. to tell latinos we're profiling you, we're suppressing your vote. we don't need a smile. we need new policies. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> religious war. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. i'm not washington. let me start tonight with this. you can't steer a car with the engine off. it's problem with the republican party today. get rid of the cultural right, abortion and gay marriage, all those began who moving to the republican party over prayer in public school years ago and you kill one giant engine. get rid of the whackos as john mccain cats them and you lose another engine. all the libertarians who just want government out of their
in the general election, however, tonight right here on this program, i am making a personal plea to ashley judd. i am urging you for the sake of the democratic party, for the sake of the country, ignore the former flphilandering president, throw your hat in the race. if you do, i'll show more ads like this one. >> you know what this country needs, an independent voice for obama. >> i am committed to president obama and vice-president biden. i think he's a brilliant man. he is now able to flower more as the president i knew he could be. >> someone who will never forget where she came from. >> and tennessee is home. >> kentucky. >> is home. >> someone who knows what's good for us. >> a lot-- >> her own grandmother says she's a hollywood liberal. isn't that what we need? ashley judd, an obama following, hollywood liberal from tennessee, kentucky. >> tennessee is home. >> and run, ashley, run, and the soon to be great senator from tennessee. fox news contributor. >> did you say former. >> tamara holder and jedidiah. >> i'm in charge. >> obviously not-- >> i'm in charge here. >> do i have to join yo
election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know, it was well advertised by the republican party, not by yo
. but i feel confident he will never win a national election in this country. they are showcasing their fringe. if you are a normal person in the middle, you're not a raging conservative, you're going to look at that parade of people and wonder what this party is all about. they seem to be on the wrong side of every issue. some of the leadership is struggle to go redefine the party. but they want to do it without changing anything. i think the party is really looking at a dead-end for the moment. >> michael: yeah, it does seem so. let's listen to reince priebus chairman of the republican national community talking at cpac about his own party. >> we need to bring that spirit of unity that we had two weeks ago every day as a party and a movement because if we're going to win more elections we have to grow this party. >> michael: spirit of unity david? >> well, i'm wonder it wondering if they were so concerned about unity why were the other gay republicans denied a platform because they're so concerned about the sanctity of marriage and donald trump who has been married three times.
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
government. and is somewhat weakened after a tough re-election fight. so from the white house perspective, he comes, the president comes here at a pretty good time to try to reach out to the israeli people. try to let them believe that he really does care about israel. that he has their back. they've been very much supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he
. bibi netanyahu would not an election by the skin of his teeth. he only just managed to put together a coalition. his right wing partners would not go along, i suspect work the complete freeze on settlements. on the palestinian side, they're showing there might be some little wiggle room. they might agree not to call for as they say, open freeze on settlements. a nudge and a wink. that's what the president is doing and saying, look. don't stay so far away from each other that you cannot even listen to each other anymore. just try and get a little closer. be practical. find the political language that will satisfy your own bases but get the peace deal done. >> the nudge and the wink. i like that. mr. richardson, one final question. let's look ahead to tomorrow when the president will be traveling to jordan. president obama has been very care wfl the u.s. involvement in syria but jordan is of course the country dealing with the syrian refugee crisis. more than 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan so far. what do you expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting with king abdullah? >> well, k
in the recent israeli elections. barack obama is likely to find a new israeli government less concerned about peace talks but very preoccupied about the unstable state of the wider region. what mr. obama will hear from his israeli counterparts is israel is very jittery. they are preparing for a fallout as syria disintegrates and hezbollah rearms. >> we are getting ready to shoot back and to be much more aggressive or much more decisive in this war in order to make this war and as quick as possible. mereve years ago as a presidential candidate, barack obama net and family rebuilding their home after a rocket attack from gaza. whatever impact he made then has long worn off. >> he says he is like any other color vision but acknowledges he has been a very good friend to israel. and a difficult trip. you are watching "bbc world news america." still to come, pope francis celebrates his first public mass as leader of the catholic church, showing signs of changes to come already. just six months after being shot in the head by the taliban today, a girl returns to school. targeted for campaigning to g
if you would criticize the president, as it would pre-election. >> jon: and more from the sequester fear playbook. >> senate leader harry reid sinks to a new low trying it tie the deaths of the u.s. marines to the sequester cuts. and a new study tells how the political press failed in their mission leading to the election. details next on news watch. tudy by the pew research study for excellence in journalism examines a personal portrayal of candidates in 50 major news outlets over a ten week period. they found 72% of the coverage has been negative for barack obama and 71% has been negative for mitt romney. back in 2008, 57% of media coverage was negative for john mccain and 31% for barack obama. but the real story is where those narratives come from, the study shows, jim, that political journalists are not really investigating, but sort of following the narrative laid out by the campaign. surprised? >> not really. there's a limit to what a reporter watching a candidate through six stops a day. do you want them to step back and say-- maybe you do, but their job and people watch and the n
that was thoroughly rejected by the american people last election. mitt roll any and paul ryan talked about the approach to the budget issues, the people in this country clearly said they didn't want to go in that direction. yesterday there was a vote on the house floor for that, unfortunately it passed with a lot of tea party members in the house. at the same time we still have not gotten a vote on common sense gun safety measures, the most obvious one being universal background checks, and as you said, speaker boehner had to walk back a proposal which called for the common-sense solution, because the tea party and others apparently bombarded his office when he made sense on this issue. so, look, the answer to this will require the american people to remain engaged and to demand that the victims in newtown, the victims in aurora, the victims of other mass shootings, and those who die every day from gun violence, that they get a vote in the house of representatives. >> but here's the problem, congressman. the polls is on the side of these common-sense measures. 57% support an assault weapon
and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections. >> i had to win in 2009 and christie and bob mcdonald, blue states and purple states, we laid down a 50-state plan. >> bill: as a former party chair of the state of california what do you people remember whether you won or lost. that's what counts. not if you happen to have a little deficit, and in fact michael steele went on to say when we were handing out checks i don't believe reince priebus complaining. >> so reince is just being silly. and i understand he wasn't complaining about debt and concerned about debt when i was write checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and he wanted to win the legislature and governor which they did and they were all on board about going into debt to win. >> when did republicans turn into democrats. it's all overshadowed and sabotaged by infighting. >> bill: this is the circular firing squad for which republicans are famous. grace nap ol 'tano will be with here today, neil king, and of course you'll be with us too throughout the morning, and mike i w
the election but continues to win policy. also on twitter fred wilder says when did senator reid become the most powerful republican in the united states. i want a real democrat as a majority leader. teamster said sadly, this is true, senator feinstein was against filibuster reform so she is now reaping what she was sown >> bill: she was not there with tom harkin and others. and geoff merkley for oregon who wanted to get rid of that filibuster, but she was on the other side. well, sadly for her. maybe she regrets it now. ron is out in elgin, illinois. hey, ron what do you say? >> normally, i would say good morning, bill. but it's not a good morning. the leaders have failed us again. this issue just irritates me right to the core of my bones. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: we have lost our soul as a nation if 203rd graders gunned down in less doesn't turn this nation to do something about the assault weapon ban, i don't know what will. >> bill: go back to the example of we talked about it, australia australia. right? when they had the brutal massive killing back t
